    Police are looking for three men who tried to abduct three boys playing basketball at Harriman State Park Sunday afternoon, park officials say.

    The boys, all between five and eight years old, were playing on a court in the upstate New York park when the men drove up in a burgundy Dodge minivan, officials say.

    One suspect got out and tried to grab one of the boys while another man attempted to lure a second child into the van, officials say.

    The boys all ran away. They weren't harmed in the abduction attempt.
